Selecting clones for better ratooning under wet harvesting conditions : SRDC final report CSR10S
MetadataShow full item record
There were three broad aims of this project: (i) To develop and evaluate a method for screening genetic material under conditions where there is (a) stool damage from harvesting machinery under wet conditions, and (b) waterlogging shortly after harvest. (ii) To evaluate a range of genetic material for ratooning under these conditions, including material generated from previous introgression breeding programs by CSR. (iii) To determine if a breeding program aimed at improving ratooning under wet conditions would be worthwhile, and if so, what sort of methods should be used.
